That's a Wrap!

I've been meaning to post this review for quite a while now, and yep, I can be a bit trife on occasion, lol.  But seriously it's been so freakin  hot here in Houston, I can barely focus on any one thing!! Schools out so I'm busy with the kids, work and home life, I swear sometimes I feel like all my energy is being zapped away every time I step outside. Truly, my only escape from this madness is my little sewing nook,  my retreat, lol.
 But back to my dress, now I realize it's been reviewed on PR like 67 gazillion times, and it's on the 2007 and 2008 best patterns list an all, oh, not to mention 2009 Hall of Fame, but anywayz, I still needed to try it out for myself, I mean, it's simply a classic!

Vogue 8379

Pattern Description: 
Wrap front dress has soft pleats, side tie, and sleeve variations.

Pattern Sizing:

BB(8-10-12-14), FF(16-18-20-22)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Pretty much!

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It's a classic wrap dress so I love that, but what I didnt like is the short bodice, what!? 
The sleeves were a bit snug and that facing.......

Fabric Used:
A knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Well, let's see..... I added 2 inches to the bodice to lengthen it, (next time 3.5) and I used steam a seam to help that wonky facing that wants to flip out!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I do plan to sew this again with more adjustments like a fba, adding more length to the bodice
and sleeves.

Aside from my minor adjustments, I too really like this dress! I can definitely see this being a TNT dress for me since I love wrap dresses.

Btw, do you like my little fall/wig I picked up? It's great when I'm being lazy with my hair, lol!
I'm over it now tho, hubby likes it short.
Thanx for visiting,  Seeya!!
